Wallbanger | [Alice Clayton]

Wallbanger

Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

Publisher's Summary

The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she’s gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor’s nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly....

In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight...

    "Had great promise..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book should have been a short 4 to 5 hour read. I was pulling my hair out towards the end becase the author would not let the story end....

    "Not sure what all the fuss is about"
    What disappointed you about Wallbanger?

    I expected more given the reviews. It was an OK listen. While yes there were some very funny moments, most of the book was boring. I was tired of hearing about her lack of "O" yes we got it, we got the memo several times. We get it, you can't have an organism. By the end I didn't care about either character. The last hour was literally a headache of continuous oh my god, I'm so totally awesome, i'm having a trillion back-to-back orgasms.


    What was most disappointing about Alice Clayton’s story?

    The narrator did not add to this story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Smith’s performances?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    No major reactions - I just didn't like it as much as others.

    "Beginnning was so GOOD!"

    I passed on this book several times. But the reviewers convinced me. I love a funny love story. This one started so good. Very funny, Great characters. The dialog was really good. I'm on the fence with the narrator. I think I maybe getting too picky. She has a great voice. I just can't figure out how she gets it so breathy..and extends the ending of words. It is annoying, but it was not a deal breaker. I didn't think I would eeeevvvvveeeerrrr finish this book it became completely different, the characters changed about a 180....and I couldn't enjoy the change. In my opinion this book could of been memorable.

    Story
    "No Sex in the City"
    What did you like best about Wallbanger? What did you like least?

    There is actually a good premise here, an unusual start to a romance. Unfortunately the author was trying so hard to be witty and funny and urbane that the characters slide right into the ridiculous. The narration actually made the problem worse, as all three female friends are read with a degree of breathless silliness that was hard to stomach.

    Far sillier than Sex in the City, not nearly as entertaining.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator could have toned down the drama and silliness.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    "GREAT LISTEN - IT KEPT ME SMILING THROUGHOUT"

    Now hold on because I'm going to gush a little here.... this was such a fun listen with lol hilarious bits (especially with the cat). It was also an entertaining and romantic listen that had that 'feel good factor' and, as the sexual chemistry kept building between H/H, it got even more so. It had a dreamy 6 pack handsome hero and a good supporting cast of characters that added another dynamic to the storyline as we hear what all the texts say as they fly between each of the six characters.

    I hadn't heard of this author before but I will definitely be looking out for any of her future books.

    Worth a credit? The hours of listening pleasure this brings you makes this a very credit-worthy listen - so, in my book, that's a YES.

    Story
    "Clive, Clive, Clive...."

    From the moment I began reading this book, I was laughing so hard iI forgot everything around me!

    Clive, the cat was epic... His love for Purina was epic...and loved his thoughts at the end! Can't wait for the next book and his views about "his people"

    OK. Enough about the cat! This was a sweet romance!

    I was utterly entertained by Caroline and her quest for 'O' only to find that the one person who could get her rocks off was her next door neighbor aptly named 'wallbanger'

    Simon on the other hand, having never been in a normal relationship because of his career finds that banging his 'harem' doesn't do it for him anymore... all he wants is Caroline.

    A huge part of the book is comical tales as the two tiptoe around each other... and when they finally get on the same page... they play games..winding them up all for the promise of 'delayed gratification!'

    The secondary characters were amazing, the antics and loves stories were touching and a nice bonus...

    Can't wait to see what Caroline and Simon do in the next book!

    I would say definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "It was good.. and then"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was good time spent until I got to the party where the story line became unbelivable


    Would you be willing to try another book from Alice Clayton? Why or why not?

    Maybe.. not sure


    Any additional comments?

    The story plot started very believable and Caroline was a person who most of us could really relate to.

    Simon's story was also very believable and so was the other friends mentioned in the book.

    Considering that most of the book is about the love story between Caroline and Simon and so much tension was built to get to the point that these 2 get to finally be together, I had to stop reading the booking when they get to Spain

    Oh come on! You don’t build all that sexual tension with someone and then sleep nights together without having sex… and then when things get to heat up Simon get “some” and not Caroline and again sleeping together without “it”!

    I am sorry but this is just too unbelievable for me…. For someone who is without a “O” for so long, you would jump to the opportunity to try to get that “O” back

    Simon was…. very disappointing… first he can’t even get words out of his mouth most of the time and then he let her have her way and don’t reciprocate the pleasure. This is not an alfa male in my opinion and for someone who is a “Wallbanger” with some kinks acts to show off, he can’t show how much he desires Caroline?

    He already told her No when she tried to have some sex before and now that they are all alone in beautful Spain, he can't talk or show her that he is into her?
    It completely put me off the book.

    If the story would just “go with the flow” for the build up sexual tension I would continue listening to this book.

    the beginning was great but then the story moves slowly forward from there on at the same time as the characters advance very quickly and become committed to one another without much commitment or persuasion from the other. Ok listen/read however the story leaves much to be desired.

    "The cat is the best part of the story..."
    What did you like best about Wallbanger? What did you like least?

    I liked the cat because of his personality. The story had a lot of potential but was a very frustrating listen due to the girl in the story always second guessing herself or being super annoying by over thinking EVERYTHING! Most issues could have been resolved if she'd just communicate! Ugh!

    Otherwise it's a good listen when you don't want to make your brain think.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The cat. I found the neighbor's career quite interesting.


    What aspect of Heather Smith’s performance would you have changed?

    She's a bit too breathy. You end up concentrating on her breathing verses reading.


    Was Wallbanger worth the listening time?

    No not really. The story has a great potential if we'd remove the hours of second guessing and overthinking from the main female character. If she would just commuicate her thoughts I think it wouldve been a far more interesting and fun story!

    Premise is good. Had potential.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Not Disappointed!! Narrator is Fabulous!"

    I have wanted to read this for ages, but my tbr list is ridiculous, so Audible is helping me no end!!!

    Listening to this was Amazing!! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and laughed at the narrator having to 'sound out' the sex noises coming from Simon's apartment. ;-)

    Really refreshing book and the relationship between Caroline and Clive is something else also.... had me in fits. I am sure that he could have a book of his own! So imagine my delight when i got to the end, seriously, what he did to the 'Tall one' i had to skip back to make sure i was hearing correctly!

    Loved the search for the missing O, and damn.... when she returns, she really dolls herself up in her finest and makes sure everyone is there to notice her entrance doesn't she ;-)

    "You're going to want to hold on for this!"

    Can't wait to get my hands on more from Alice..

    "3-4 star book"
    What made the experience of listening to Wallbanger the most enjoyable?

    A fair bit of the dialogue was laugh out loud funny - a bit embarrassing when you are doing you shopping


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Heather Smith?

    I might but i found her style a bit too slow, I enjoyed it more when i listened to it at 1.5x speed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no! it is far too long to listen in one go but i did listen to it over 2 days.


    Any additional comments?

    I found it quite easy to listen to and enjoy in a very superficial way, I did'nt especially bond with the characters but they were nice. There are no major crisis or overly emotional parts of the book (youll be in no danger of crying thats for sure) I did struggle to get through their trip to spain but then the story picks up again after that. the sex is not especially raunchy either and I quite like rude/sexy book. Overall I would describe this as a really good holiday book worthy of about 3.5 stars overall.
